Single Vision

WHY DID HOYA REINVENT SINGLE VISION LENSES?

If you’ve never thought about your brand of eyeglass lenses, you’re certainly not alone. But when you consider how important your vision is to your life, how much you rely on your sense of sight throughout your day, you begin to understand what drives our efforts to improve every aspect of vision correction, which is what sets HOYA apart.

Because our innovations go beyond eyeglass lenses, we’re able to draw on breakthroughs in other industries to help guide and inform our research and development in vision care. We apply all our optical expertise to create the world’s most advanced eyeglass lens designs, materials and treatments, because we believe every pair of eyes deserves the best vision correction possible.

iD Single Vision

iD Single Vision lenses are the first to integrate your lens design on both the front and back surfaces, so you can see more clearly in all directions.

Traditionally made single vision lenses have a constant curvature across the front surface, which makes peripheral vision almost impossible. Aspheric lenses were invented to reduce distortions in peripheral vision, with curvatures changing from center to edge. But until now, aspheric designs have been purely theoretical, with little consideration for how your eyes actually move.

A lens design that accounts for your unique visual tendencies

No two people see the world exactly the same way. That’s why HOYA’s iD Single Vision is the first aspheric lens design based on how your eyes actually see the world. Our patented Integrated Double Surface design (IDS) technology then shapes your lens design on both the front and back surface of each lens plate, to maximize viewing ranges and virtually eliminate distortions in peripheral vision.

Singe Vision iQ

You could settle for traditional single vision, or see the world in Hi-Definition

Single Vision iQ lenses are designed to provide crisper, clearer viewing zones than any other traditionally made single vision lens.

The Single Vision iQ lens is made possible by a new level of precision in traditional single vision lens design, which provides sharper perspectives, and noticeably expanded viewing zones, no matter where you look.

A lens making process that improves standard single vision performance

We’ve revolutionized the standard progressive lens manufacturing process to produce a more intuitive design, resulting in much more vivid perspectives. The difference between looking through our Single Vision iQ lens and a traditionally made single vision lens is like seeing a Hi-definition screen after watching analog television.

Single Vision iQ Benefits

1) VIVID VIEWING RANGES

Noticeably sharper viewing zones as compared to other traditionally made single vision lenses

2) CLEAR PERIPHERAL VISION

Smooth adaptations between all viewing ranges and angles

3) MORE COMFORTABLE

Allows for more natural eye and head movement throughout your day
